5 Memory Boosters That Work - And 4 That Don't

Five That Work

1. Acetyl L-carnitine (ALC) -- check your local health food store.

2. Phosphatidylserine (PS) -- takes a few weeks to see effects (check your local health food store).

3. Piracetam (this is really more of a mental alert or "wake up" drug). All of your perceptions stay sharp. More for my type of person who wants results fast.(available only by mail order).

4. Gingko Biloba (the Chinese "fossil" not herb, see for a proper definition). Several publications claim that "Gingko biloba" works, but in my experience, it has not. I tried it a few times in vain. (ubiquitously available).

5. B Vitamins -- Vitamins B1 (thiamine) , B3 (niacin) and B-6 (pyridoxine) may improve memory and thinking. How? B1 helps by helping the body burn carbohydrates, the main source for energy for brain cells. B3 "appears" to boost short-term memory and comprehension. B6 plays a role in the formation of several of brain's neurotransmitters.

For any of these supplements, please first talk to your doctor and then follow recommended dosage guidelines (you could also start with what is printed on the labels). For example, more than two grams of niacin can cause peptic ulcers and aggravate cardiac arrhythmia. More than 200 milligrams (mg) a day can be toxic to nerve cell and could interfere with Parkinson's disease drugs.

Four That Are Reported to NOT Work

1. Fipexide -- Stay away. It reportedly caused severe liver damage.

2. Gerovital -- Widely marketed as an antiaging formula. Contains the local anaesthetic procaine, an antioxidant and a preservative. Excessive dosages are reported to have caused tremors, convulsions, unconsciousness, hypo/hyper tension (low/high blood pressure), and cardiac arrest. STAY AWAY. Its effect on the mind is questionable.

3. Phenytoin (Dilantin ®) -- An anti-epileptic drug, sometimes falsely pushed as an "IQ booster." Apparently, no convincing studies exist to prove its effectiveness as an "IQ booster." Side effects might include deadly liver, blood and thyroid disorders, slurred speech. No one needs this.

4. Vincamine ® -- Derived from periwinkle plant (grown in the US, somewhere in the east/south), this herbal supplement is said to enhance concentration, boost memory, and attention in patients with poor blood circulation. It did not work for me. I tried for a month. Got a free sample from somewhere in Spain. Long-term use may cause cardiac arrhythmia and sleep disorders.

10-second Trick to Germproof Yourself

In 10 quick seconds, you can lock out colds, common parasitic infections and other infectious diseases. How?

Mayo Clinic experts say that these germs are not airborne. They ride and hide on your hands, mainly. The secret is NOT in the soap you use, but the water. Apply any handwash soap, but then be sure to "rub your hands under warm water for at least 10 seconds and rinse thoroughly." People usually in a hurry don't do that and needlessly suffer. So, for effective immunization, next time be sure to rub your hands for at least 10 seconds. How do you count? 1001, 1002, 1003...1010.

How To Add a Decade To Your Life

According to Gary Fraser, MD, PhD, a professor at Loma Linda Univ. (Calif.), healthful living can add an extra 10 years to your life. In what is considered the first study to quantify the life-extending benefits of a healthy lifestyle, researchers found that people who ate a vegetarian diet, exercised vigorously for at least 15 minutes three or four times/week, maintained an appropriate weight, never smoked and ate moderate amounts of nuts five times a week lived 10 years longer than people who didn't.

How to Lose Belly Fat and Save Your Life

Arthur Agatston, MD, University of Miami School of Medicine, author of "South Beach Diet" Published: July 1, 2003

The size of your waist is a better indicator of health risks than your weight. Men whose waists measure more than 40 inches and women whose waists measure more than 35 inches usually have excess visceral fat. Large amounts of visceral fat -- which wraps around internal organs, such as the heart -- greatly increase your risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer.


Diet is the key to reducing visceral fat -- specifically, a diet that contains little or no refined carbohydrates. The carbohydrates that dominate the typical American diet -- white bread, pasta, cereal, snack foods, cakes, cookies, candies, etc. -- are stripped of fiber during processing. These foods are quickly digested and absorbed as glucose, the form that sugar takes in the bloodstream. The body must produce ever-increasing amounts of insulin to remove excess glucose and fat from the blood. Elevated levels of insulin promote fat storage in the abdomen. High insulin levels end up removing too much glucose from the blood. The resulting low blood sugar, called reactive hypoglycemia, triggers food cravings. The more you give in to the cravings, the more weight you gain. I have developed a three-phase plan that reduces insulin resistance and food cravings without dramatic calorie reductions. People typically lose eight to 13 pounds in the first two weeks and one to two pounds a week thereafter.


For 14 days, eat all the lean meat, chicken, turkey and seafood you want. Eliminate refined carbohydrates -- bread, pasta, rice, baked goods, candy and alcohol. These foods have high glycemic indexes. The glycemic index measures the amount by which a specific food raises blood glucose levels. Eliminating these foods for 14 days reduces cravings for carbohydrates and helps normalize glucose levels. Eventually, you will be able to add some high-glycemic foods back into your diet. Fruits and root vegetables such as carrots and potatoes also have high glycemic indexes and should be avoided in this phase. You can have as much as you want of other vegetables. To find the glycemic index of various foods, go to You also can have mono- and polyunsaturated fats, such as olive and canola oils. These satisfy appetite, reduce food cravings and help lower levels of harmful triglycerides and LDL cholesterol -- key risk factors in people with large stores of visceral fat. Nuts also are allowed. They are filling and contain mainly monounsaturated fats. Nuts are high in calories, so limit yourself to about 15 almonds or cashews, 30 pistachios or 12 peanuts (technically a legume) daily. Don't worry about overeating. Eat until you're satisfied -- you'll still lose weight. Most of the weight loss that occurs during this phase will come from your midsection.


During week three, you can reintroduce refined carbohydrates into your diet. Your body will respond more normally to insulin's effects. You can allow yourself a small serving of bread, pasta, potatoes or rice twice a day. Cookies, cakes, candy, alcohol and snack foods, such as potato chips, still should be avoided. Continue to focus on foods that have low glycemic indexes. Foods that are rich in fiber, such as brown rice, whole-grain breads, etc., have the lowest glycemic numbers because they are digested slowly and release glucose into the bloodstream gradually. Helpful: Prepare foods whole, or chop them as coarsely as possible. The more work the stomach has to do to digest the food, the more slowly glucose enters the bloodstream. Finely chopped foods -- shredded potatoes in hash browns, for example -- allow glucose to enter the bloodstream more quickly. Whole fruit is better than juice for the same reason.

Other Phase 2 strategies...

Eat fish at least twice a week. The omega-3 fatty acids in fish have been shown to reduce heart attack and stroke risk. Salmon, mackerel and herring are particularly rich in omega-3s. Eat a high-protein breakfast. Morning protein suppresses food cravings and promotes weight loss. People who skip breakfast experience morning drops in blood glucose that trigger cravings. They also tend to eat more calories during the day. A study of teenagers found that those who ate sugary breakfast cereals consumed 80% more calories over the following five hours than those who ate omelettes. Try an omelette with cheese or vegetables, such as asparagus or broccoli, or have Canadian bacon, turkey bacon, low-fat cottage cheese or farmer cheese. Snack when you're hungry. Always try to keep some food in your stomach. It is the best way to prevent sudden food cravings. Rather than grabbing fast foods that are high in glucose-raising carbohydrates, try cheese sticks or a serving of sugar-free yogurt. These foods are ideal because they provide appetite-suppressing protein with very little sugar.


This is the maintenance phase of the diet. Once you have reached your desired weight, continue to limit refined carbohydrates to keep food cravings under control, minimize insulin resistance and maintain low levels of visceral fat.
